BOSTON – A former employee of the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles was convicted today of conspiracy to produce false identification documents.
Alexander Brewer, 24, of Boston, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Mark L. Wolf to conspiracy to produce false information documents. Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 18, 2013. Brewer faces up to five years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
